2016 Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupé revealed

The wraps have finally come off the Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupé and here it is! The overall shape of the C Class Coupé is proving to be a bit of an oddity here at AUSmotive HQ. From most angles the shape looks very good. But from the three-quarter rear it just looks wrong—a bit too much […]

Mercedes-AMG C63 Coupé leaked

Last week Mercedes-Benz released images and details for its new C Class Coupé. It stands to reason then that we all want to know about the hot AMG version, the C63. Well here’s a first look thanks to these leaked images. Power will come from the same 4.0 litre V8 biturbo found in the C63 […]

Mercedes-AMG C63 revealed

Mercedes-AMG (as they like to be called these days) has a new 4.0 litre V8 biturbo engine. We saw it first in the AMG GT, and now they’re going about the process of stuffing it into pretty much every model they make that’s bigger than an A Class. With the forthcoming Paris Motor Show the […]

Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Estate spied

This is the latest version of the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Estate, which has been spied recently in Germany. It’s awesome to see Mercedes will continue the C63 model line with the new C Class range. Except it won’t be a “63” at all. No, the old and much loved 6.2 litre normally aspirated V8 will […]

Chris Harris says goodbye to the M156 V8

The normally aspirated V8 engine found in the C63 was first launched back in 2007. Since then it has powered AMG-enhanced C Class coupes, saloons and estates to the top of many people’s wish lists. The M156 V8 has been AMG’s stock-in-trade in recent years, beating away in plenty of other models too. Approaching the […]

2014 Mercedes-Benz C Class revealed

This is the new Mercedes-Benz C Class. And we reckon it looks pretty good. On the outside the proportions look pleasing and the styling is unmistakably Mercedes without being too staid. Actually, if you take the best parts of the flagship S Class and the best parts of the rather droopy, yet more dramatically styled […]

2014 Mercedes-Benz C Class images leaked

No it’s not a bigger Mercedes-Benz CLA sedan, it’s the new W205 C Class. The image above features an AMG bodykit and when the new C Class isn’t wearing its sporty clothes it looks a bit like a baby S Class. Mercedes revealed interior pics of the new C Class last week (see below) and […]

AIMS 2012 gallery: Mercedes-Benz

Mercedes-Benz had a huge presence at the 2012 Australian International Motor Show, made even more noticeable by the absence of both Audi and BMW. It’s actually very refreshing to see how serious Mercedes takes the Australian market, when we often get treated as second best by other manufacturers. A great example of that is the […]

Mercedes C63 AMG Black lands down under

Mercedes-Benz Australia is making a big deal about the first C63 AMG Coupé Black Series making its way to our shores. And why wouldn’t they. With 380kW on tap from a handbuilt 6.3 litre V8 and a kick arse body kit it’s a car sure to win admirers from all walks of life. The car […]

Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series

Lust has a new name and it’s called the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black Series. It’s a new more extreme AMG C-Class packing a 380kW (517hp) punch. The most powerful C-Class ever uses an M156 6.3 litre V8, coupled to a 7-speed MCT gearbox, to good effect reaching 100km/h in 4.2 seconds. The engine offers plenty […]

Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black announces itself

Images of this car have been emerging on websites around the globe. The car, we are told, is the Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG Black and it magically appeared at a Mercedes event at the Le Castellet circuit in France. As if AMG wasn’t already enough, Benz goes back in black to turn the dial way past […]
